The RWA Nighthawk Custom GRP Recon - CNC Steel Limited Edition 1911 pistol is by far and above the finest airsoft 1911 available.  Being a fully licensed pistol, RWA took inspiration in the production philosophy of Nighthawk Custom's "One Gun One Gunsmith" mantra which translated into one technician painstakingly ensuring each pistol is up to a standard worthy of the Nighthawk Custom stamp.

Being crafted from high quality CNC steel, nothing can quite prepare you for what you will experience when picking up the pistol.  The weight is distributed evenly throughout the gun and the moment you pick it up you almost forget that its an airsoft pistol you are holding.? The angles of the 1911 are faithfully recreated and for gun enthusiasts, the pistol has no visible "airsoft" aspects to it where it will distract from your experience.

"This thing is the MOST realistic and the most amazing Airsoft 1911 I've ever have a chance to handle." - Airsoft GI Daniel

"This doesn't feel like an airsoft 1911, it feels a lot closer to my [real] Springfield 1911" - Airsoft GI Daniel

Aesthetically the GRP (Global Response Pistol) is a modern 1911 and features an extended beaver tail on the grip safety, discreet front and rear slide serrations, and three dot front and rear sights. These bespoke features give the classic look of the 1911 a sleek "facelift" without taking away the essence of what people love about this platform.  The addition of a "recon" rail allows for the mounting of lights and lasers.  It is the inclusion of this rail that gives the GRP the "Recon" designation, like other 1911s in Nighthawk Custom's line up such as the Warhawk "Recon" and Heinie Signature "Recon".

The pistol is powered by Co2 as the added gas pressure is needed to cycle the steel slide and the added tension of the recoil spring makes the shoot experience of the pistol something pleasantly unexpected. The strong recoil can rival that of some .22lr pistols as the mass of the slide travels back and forth cycling through each BB. The pistol is also compatible with green gas using the Tokyo Marui 1911 magazines. If you are thinking about using this method, use the long magazines as they hold more gas volume for better recoil. The long Tokyo Marui 1911 magazine also enables the proper cycling of the slide. Due to its mass, the slide does generally requires higher pressure to fully achieve its desired effect, thus Co2 is still recommended.

"Basically you pay RWA to build you a custom 1911 that not too many other people have and this exactly what Nighthawk Custom does in real life." - Popular Airsoft Product Review

"After reviewing the GRP it will be difficult to review any other GBB handgun and I don't even look at my TM 1911 the same way, I might file for divorce from it." - Popular Airsoft Product Review

As a shooting gun, the pistol is extremely "shootable". Nighthawk Custom pistols have seen service around the world from military personnel?to competition shooters. This pedigree of high-quality production, precision crafting, and deadly accuracy translates into a pistol that is both beautiful to look at and deadly to shoot. The same can be said about its airsoft counterpart. The tight tolerances between the slide, frame, and outer barrel makes for a solid package when delivering BBs downrange in a highly accurate manner. The significant reduction in wobble makes sure that with each trigger pull the BB is consistently shot out of the gun with minor variation ensuring the best possible grouping. Capping this off with a soft breaking and cleaning resetting trigger makes this airsoft variant of the Nighthawk Custom GRP Recon highly desirable and undoubtedly worth the premium price that it carries.
